Home Forums Let’s Talk Photography Softboxes? Reply To: Softboxes?


Your softboxes look like they might be a Westcott 500 watt home studio set.  A softbox is a lot like a shoot-through umbrella that does not let light escape out the back.  I don’t know if that helps you.

You have a lot of colour creeping into your shots.  Some have a green tinge and some have a pink tinge.  The photo of your softboxes has a lot of pink around the edges.  I can’t tell if that is being picked up from a coloured wall or from some other light in the room.  Some softboxes go on studio strobes, many of which are powerful enough to completely overpower ambient light in a room.  The small, single bulb continuous lamps do not have enough power to do that, although they are still useful if used carefully.
